Evanston, IL (PRWEB) October 03, 2014 - Caring Transitions of Chicago and North Suburbs owner Erin Marcus was just recognized by The North Shore-Barrington Association of REALTORS as the organization's Affiliate Member of the Year.
Marcus joined the association two years ago when she launched her local Caring Transitions franchise. Marcus' business specializes in managing senior moves, downsizing, and estate liquidation. Full service projects include everything from helping to choose what is going to the new home, to liquidating items no longer desired and getting a house ready for market and for closing.
"I was completely surprised by the award. I sponsored the luncheon and was running around beforehand trying to get organized and talking to people and I wasn't really even thinking about the actual awards. Being recognized hadn't even crossed my mind. It was a nice surprise," Marcus said.
"Being part of the organization isn't just about building my business – it's about being part of a community. I've become very active in the group since I joined two years ago. I'm on the board of the Women Council of Realtors in charge of membership and I head up the NSBAR workshop revitalizing the affiliate program. I also met my two primary "go-to" vendors through the group," she said.
Marlene Rubenstein, Chair of NSBAR's Awards & Recognition Committee, said she & others work with Marcus, recommend Marcus to their own real estate clients, especially if they are working with elderly clients or families that need an estate sale.
"I think Erin is absolutely terrific – personally as well as professionally. She genuinely loves what she does and it shows. As a service provider she does an outstanding job. She always goes over and above the call of duty … If the client has special needs or is particularly fuzzy, she is resourceful and creative and will offer an online sale as an alternative. She simplifies the process and makes it seamless from start to finish," Rubenstein said. "Not only does she always get the most value for furniture, furnishings and personal possessions, she gets them picked up, delivered and cleans up when the sale is completed. My clients love her and she develops a beautiful relationship. As a professional, it is a pleasure to recommend Erin from introduction to exit she makes the caring transition with love, passion, commitment, ease, respect and success."
In addition to the work Marcus does with the association and with her own business, Marcus also works with new Caring Transitionsfranchise owners, she has opened her business as a training center and she's built a network of franchise owners who work together on projects throughout the year. Marcus also was recognized as the 2014 Caring Transitions Trailblazer of the Year.
Before launching her own business, Marcus worked in corporate America in long-term care insurance, most recently as the Senior Vice President of Business Development for LTCI Partners.
